  • Listen to the tide come in right beneath your window!

    "This tiny cabin is right on the rocks with the tide coming in and out directly below the windows! It is a magical spot, all you can see is the ocean, rocks, islands and curve of the shore. The view is unbeatable! We were there just before "the season" started so it was wonderfully quiet. I imagine it would be kind of crazed in the high season, but what seaside spot isn't? Also, the cabin is kind of set apart by the rocks so it will always be quieter than the some of the surrounding houses. Clean, everything in working order. Very helpful interactions with the owner. You can bring your dog to the Lobster Dock in East Boothbay if you sit by the railing and ask first. Listen, the food there isn't that great but the location is unbeatable and the staff is nice! The fireplace is made of stone with giant conch shells embedded between them. Fragrant sea roses bloom along the quiet little road. The cabin is near Grimes Bay which is like a teeeny tiny beach where you can go swimming at medium and high tide. The cabin is little but perfect: two bedrooms (one is a bit awkward with a strangely built bunk bed but good for kids!) and a great little kitchen and little bathroom with a shower and cozy living room with a breathtaking view which I can't even describe! A little dining table with another table out on the cute deck (a barbecue is there, too). A short drive to East Boothbay for groceries and the farmer's market and just a little further on for Boothbay Harbor. I would go back in a heartbeat."

    "This is the best vacation spot on the North East Coast. What could be better than sitting high over the bay listening to bird song, watching the little lobster boats pull up their catch, and sipping on a cocktail every evening. Somehow the air is clean and the skys are bright everytime we rent your fantastic home. Many thanks, we will be back time and time again, if we are aloud!"

    "If I were to build my own house along the ocean, it would look like this beautiful cottage. It has natural pine walls and hardwood floors, giving a clean airy feel. With three bedrooms upstairs, each with their own sliding glass doors and balcony, and a giant front deck there are breathtaking water views from every room. Wake up to the sound of the ocean and the sunrise over Penobscot Bay. This cottage (really a house) easily fits two families with children with enough room for 10 people. Two showers, a completely open concept living room, kitchen and dining area gives everyone a chance to reminisce over the days adventures and plan the next day together. A stone and sand beach is just feet away from the deck. It is a sea-kayaker's dream house. Lobstermen can be seen working the waters and their catch is available for purchase without a drive to town. Whether summer or winter, this cottage has it all. Without question this is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. The owner is attentive and appreciative and truly cares about the experience of those who rent this amazing property."

  • Just what we were looking for!

    "After staying in a number of "rustic" (code word for run down) camps in Maine over the years, we really appreciated staying in this lovely new cottage. Robin and Keith thought of everything to make our stay comfortable - paper goods, soap and linens. All we had to bring was our clothes and some groceries. It's even baby-proofed for families with little ones. Downstairs is the well-equipped kitchen, large dining area, spacious screened porch, half bath and a bedroom. Upstairs is the comfortable living room with flat-screen TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs, a larger bedroom with walk-in closet, bathroom with shower and a deck. The DR, LR, porch and deck have amazing views of the water and islands. The cottage has lovely tile and maple floors. It is tastefully decorated. The cottage is in the active fishing village of West Point which located about 15 miles from Bath (groceries, shops, gas) - at the end of the Phippsburg peninsula. You can watch the lobster boats come and go. Keith is somehow related to William Wallace (Braveheart) and is a lobster fisherman. The cottage has interesting photos of the fishing village in years gone by as well as four generations of Keith's family - his grandfather with a prize tuna catch in the '30s, his father with his boat brimming with tuna, Keith with an unbelievably large shark tail, and his daughter with a blue lobster. We bought lobsters from Keith and Robin at a great price. They even delivered them right to the cottage! There are walking trails. Just down the hill from the cottage is Cat's Cove where you can swim, scramble on the rocks and look for treasures in the sand. The cottage is near Head Beach and Popham Beach State Park and not too far from Reid State Park. It's just down the road from Sebasco Resort where there is a golf course and a spa. It's less than an hour from Freeport, the home of L.L. Bean (open 24 hours/day, 365 days/year) and many other brand name shops. The only down side was the water situation which is the same for all of the residents of the village. Water from the well was OK to drink but was high in iron and had an odd odor. Robin and Keith provided bottled water to drink and cook with, so it was not a problem. All in all, it's a great cottage in a great location. It was just what we were looking for. We hope to return some day."
